Zapping Zappa (2004)

This piece was conceived as humoristic tribute to the composer and musician Frank Zappa. Using different types of samples from the music of Frank Zappa I built an imaginary zapping through different musical states inspired in Zappa’s electronic, instrumental, theatre and rock music. Parallel to the evolution of the zapping in the piece there is an evolution in terms of timbral rhythmic layers that evolve gradually changing in sonorities from one section to another following a characteristic percussive pattern.
